Iris Senior Living Announces Acquisition of Dallas Memory Care in Turtle Creek

Private-pay memory care community in Turtle Creek gets new ownership and new management with substantial upgrades to come.

Turtle Creek, Dallas - July 6, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Iris Senior Living is proud to announce that it has just acquired a Dallas memory care community in Turtle Creek, which is now rebranded as Iris Memory Care of Turtle Creek. The intent is to renovate and reposition the community and become the preferred, specialized memory care provider serving all of Dallas, including Uptown, Downtown, Park Cities, North Dallas, Northeast Dallas, East Dallas, Lakewood, Northwest Dallas, and Preston Hollow.

"Memory Care is best done in an intimate, residential environment, contained within one or more single-story structures. It's very rare to come across a single-story building built specifically for seniors in a high-density, urban location such as Turtle Creek. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to expand our brand into an urban market with a legacy project, and offer a memory-care specialized, residential alternative to the large-scale retirement communities which have a memory care "wing" (often on the 2nd or 3rd floor)." Says the owners of Iris Senior Living.

The Iris model is to provide senior housing services in an intimate setting which offers quality care to its residents that are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia in a residential-like environment where each resident can maximize their health, happiness, and freedom of movement. Memory care provides intensive, long-term care to seniors with Alzheimer's & other types of dementia in a fully staffed and secure environment. Specialized care requires a higher staff to resident ratio and additional training compared to other types of senior living communities to ensure the safety of all the residents.

The business plan is to reposition the community as the preferred, specialized memory care provider by completing a cosmetic renovation bringing the property up-to-date with current design trends and technology. The renovation is anticipated to take six months and will be completed in a strategic manner to minimize operational disturbances and to ensure the comfort of the current residents.

ABOUT IRIS SENIOR LIVING

Iris Memory Care Community is a residential alternative to traditional assisted living. Unlike other Memory Care communities which are normally a "wing" in a much larger community, Iris Memory Care offers specialized Alzheimer's and dementia care in a residential setting. Advanced research has shown that those living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia thrive in a small, intimate environment, therefore our home-like model lends itself to maintaining each resident's health, happiness, and freedom of movement.

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend.

US priest who gave out gifts in Philippines accused of abuse

Oct 17, 2019

TALUSTUSAN, Philippines — The American priest's voice echoed over the phone line, his sharp Midwestern accent softened over the decades by a gentle Filipino lilt. On the other end, recording the call, was a young man battered by shame but anxious to get the priest to describe exactly what had happened in this little island village. "I should have known better than trying to just have a life," the priest said in the November 2018 call. "Happy days are gone. It's all over." But, the young man later told the Associated Press, those days were happy only for the priest....

Women, late-in-life new authors expand Japanese literature

Oct 17, 2019

TOKYO — The works receiving one of Japan's most coveted literary awards, the Naoki Prize, have something new in common: For the first time in 85 years, all six of the nominated authors are women. Japan is home to what many consider the world's first novel, "The Tale of Genji," written in the 11th century by noblewoman Murasaki Shikibu. Its modern fiction has been defined mostly by long-established male writers such as past Nobel laureates Kenzaburo Oe and Yasunari Kawabata. And for decades it has been dominated by Haruki Murakami, whose surreal blend of magical realism and pop culture has...

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

Oct 17, 2019

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...
